United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology Companion Meeting

USCAP LogoThe Society for Ultrastructural Pathology participates in annual meetings of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) through two major activities. The first is a companion meeting, normally held on Sunday from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon, in which a panel of invited speakers makes presentations on a topic of interest to the SUP membership.  The second, later in the week, is a session in which posters based on proffered abstracts are presented.  Any attendee who has registered for the relevant portion(s) of the USCAP meeting is encouraged to attend these sessions, regardless of SUP membership.

The 2017 USCAP Annual Meeting was in early March, 2017.
